Chris Whitley 1960-2005

My brother and I got to see Chris Whitley open for Tom Petty at Starwood Ampitheatre in Nashville right after the release of Chris's 1st album, "Living With The Law." We were both so blown away that the next morning we went all over Nashville looking for the CD. Apparently, we were not the only people there who were so blown away by Whitley's performance as there was not a copy of the CD to be had at any record store in Nashville on that day. Everywhere we went, it was the same story, "We just sold out."

Eventually, I did get that CD, and now I own everything that Chris Whitley ever released. He was a truly unique and amazing artist and performer.
